I was sleeved on 11/8 and I'm having a real hard time with pain and with getting Fluid and Protein in, I'm not coming even close to my goals for protein. Those of you that were sleeved in early November, how has your progress been?

Ohhh, be patient. My first 2 days was Water only, day 3 maybe protien hit 25. By day 5 I was at 50. Day 11 today. I am now getting 5 to 6 meals in, 58 to 60 protien and at least 48oz of water in daily. You will get there, hang in.

I just had my surgery on November 6th, going great so far! My 1 week post op appointment is tomorrow, hope to add creamed Soups and yogurt to my diet.

I had my surgery in the 8th as well. Make sure you are taking your nausea medicine as well. I was neglecting it and could barely get 30oz of Fluid. Got home and had a miserable day. My wife asked me if I was taking the medicine I said no I didn’t feel nauseous. She told me being unable to drink is exactly what the nausea is. So I started taking it and instead of taking 5 hours to get a 16oz Protein Water down on Saturday night, it took me 2.5 hours this morning and it felt much more natural. It’s a huge difference and I’d give that a try. It may take a day or so to get the dehydration under control but once you have that and nausea taken care of, it’s a lot easier.

I’ve got my post surgery appointment this Friday, and I too am looking forward to adding creamed Soups to my diet, as well as get approval for a spoonful or two of mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving.
